Thanksgiving Tablescape

My parents came into town for Thanksgiving, which meant that my dad prepared the feast and left me time for the more exciting task; the tablescape.

I'm the kind of person that believes that a centerpiece, plate chargers, cloth napkins, individual placecards, a table runner and accents of burlap here and there somehow make the meal taste better. I love the details.

I was delighted with the woodsy items I found/made to add to the decor this year.

My mom and I whipped up these little silverware holders tied with twine while the turkey was a cookin'.

We had a delicious feast surrounded by family (and might I say a pretty ambiance) and counted our many blessings.
